Michael Bucciantini is a well traveled professional photographer. He's lived in some of the most beautiful areas of the U.S. from Alaska, to the Virgin Islands, and even Maui! He's experienced in landscape, real estate, portrait, food, and surf photography.
I love art and I live for moments when I am creating it. Photography gives me a strong sense of purpose. I know exactly who I am when I'm behind the camera.
What types of shoots have you done and how did you make them special?
Shooting surf photography was always interesting, because most of these people were just learning how to surf. Some were catching their first waves, so being able to capture that moment for them while out in the water was quite a challenge for everyone involved. I would encourage the new surfers to throw up a shaka pose while riding the wave, which always made for a great photo.
Awards, honors, and recognitions received
